environment and repealing obamacare. these are the burdens we have got to remove. >> and is now time for closing statements. congressman kantor -- cantor goes first. >> this is a robust discussion. it is a debate that has been tougher with what is wrong with politics today. that is a rash of personal attacks on my family. as we saw, at a competitive disregard for the truth. none of these negative tax to anything to trade a job or educate a child or do anything to bring down the deficit. the thames at character assassination -- the attempt at character assassination make it hard to compromise and sit down and get something done. i think you underestimate the decency of the voters of the seventh district. i have the honor honoring been for seven years. i have every confidence that the voters will reject your-came to your campaign. this is about what kind of country we want to be. there is one that i advocated that will produce more jobs. his view is that we need to raise taxes. the fact is we all know that the unprecedented prosperity of america did not come because the government just
back dollars to new jersey in this environment. and what would you identify as the most pressing new jersey project in need of fiscal funding? >> unfortunately, these guys abuse be earmarked process. there were excessive. and of course now we are at a point with our debt problems that we cannot afford them. so i am going to fight tooth and nail -- within the confines of form and other plans that exist for people to compete. and i am going be very active around the state. we lost a big army base. people all around new jersey. sure where you were in that fight. i did not see you. we lost that base. lost those jobs. they moved to aberdeen, maryland and a sky high price tag for the american taxpayer. >> time, sir. >> that is what we have to work for. >> thank you, sir. >> look, joe, you are entitled to your opinion, but not your facts. the reality is that when the base -- i did not have the privilege at the time when that was going under, was going on. so, that is not when you cannot subscribe to me. i joined colleagues who were representing the area to be supportive. but suggesting that
political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as the democratic party chair, in some ways, being the partisan chief of the party. what would you say to virginians that would convince them that when you go to washington, you'd be not partisan and not simply a loyal lieutenant in harry reid's army. >> i will tell you two things. i served with two presidents. i serve with president bush and president obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. tho
, it will be despite his campaign. i think he grew up in a privileged environment, just like his father wanted to give everything he can. john mccain was someone isolated in his thinking somewhere along the way. also, his parents instilled upon him that because of those privileges, he had a responsibility and that his class had a responsibility to give back and to be a leader later. i think he wants to be president because he wants to make good decisions. he wants to reorganize the government so that it is efficient. he can tell you 137 things he wanted to get done. i do not think mitt romney can tell you what he wants to do. he just wants to be a good president. because of that, if he is leavihe is weaving around out there. he was a very progressive governor until he started looking presidentially and then veered over. in the primaries very much over on the right. he did not want 50%. he wanted 51.1%. i am not saying he does not have principles. he does not have a political philosophy. he does that have things he wants to accomplish. because of that, the campaign is wondering. he is wondering. i thin

and events like this are incredibly valuable. not just because they help us all survive in an environment that is constantly shifting but because they give us a rare opportunity to reflect on where our profession is going. there is a whole lot to reflect upon. we are coming off what has been dubbed the summer of sin, where jonah lair was accused of plagiarism implied -- a plagiarism and the situation in canada. it is easy to lose ourselves in the individual cases of these single to analysts who are accused of fabrication or plagiarism. but we should not lose focus on what it tells about our profession and where it is going to read journalists are now expected to become -- to sell themselves to survive. i like to raise the question -- is branding oneself compatible with good journalism? >> if used to be there was a church-state wall between advertising and editorial. if you or your own advertiser, is it possible to maintain that separation? obviousquestion that's to raise -- is this any way to cover an election? it is a really good question. i am sure the profession -- will start -- sparke
